March 2014 has brought to the forefront by Reuters, the current progress made on the United Nations resolution to begin major relief to Syrians who have been starving due to the continued civil war there.
The efforts to bring the large numbers of people enough supplies to provide sustenance requires a comprehensive plan that takes into account the most viable routes to bringing in the food, but also how to best dispense it, and protect the aid workers.
As of March 15, Turkey has been designated as a plausible route for such food aid. However which route has been the question.
The current status of the humanitarian disaster in Syria due to the fighting that was spurred on by Allied forces, brings up the most poignant question. If Allied forces are willing to back rebel groups to overthrow governments, what is their responsiblity in covering for the unforeseen humanitarian disasters? Furthermore, what sort of policy can move the required end of the bloodshed in order that stability returns to Syria enough to support a comprehensive solution to the conflict? Does the stability come before a successful resolution?
Furthermore, what role does the ultimate 12 step plan to end to terror designed in the rough by the King of Morocco mean to bringing a change of vision to millions of people across the Arab World?
What actions do governments as well as bankers, and developers need to take to assure the focus stays of building new infrastructure, in the light of a new trend of moderate shiria laws, etc?
What role does military have in assuring good shipments of food aid becomes a secure part of the ultimate deal to end the conflict in Syria?

Kampanjen Världens Barn syftar till att hjälpa barn runt om världen, de barn som varje dag tvingas vakna upp till en svår och utsatt vardag.
Världens Barn kampanjen är den största insamlingskampanjen i Sverige. Kampanjen är ett samarbete mellan Radiohjälpen, SVT och 21 biståndsorganisationer så som Rädda Barnen, Unicef, LIONS, IOGT-NTO etc. Liksom tidigare år är Världens Barn-insamlingens mål att hjälpa utsatta barn i världen till liv, utbildning, hälsa och en värdig framtid. Metoden är hjälp till självhjälp.
De barn som organisationerna kommer i kontakt med lever ofta under svåra förhållanden. Det kan handla om fattigdom, svält, barnprostitution, militära verksamheter, barnarbete, bortgifte, efterverkningar av könsstympning och även livshotande sjukdomar.
